A King and no King


I think thou lov'st 'em better than quarrelling _Bessus_, I'le
say so much i'thy behalf, and yet thou 'rt valiant enough upon a
retreat, I think thou wouldst kill any man that stopt thee if
thou couldst.
_Bes_.
But was not this a brave Combate _Mardonius_?
_Mar_.
Why, didst thou see't?
_Bes_.
You stood wi'me.
_Mar_.
I did so, but me thought thou wink'dst every blow they strook.
_Bes_.
Well, I believe there are better souldiers than I, that never saw
two Princes fight in lists.
_Mar_.
By my troth I think so too _Bessus_, many a thousand, but
certainly all that are worse than thou have seen as much.
_Bes_.
'Twas bravely done of our King.
_Mar_.
Yes, if he had not ended the wars: I'me glad thou dar'st talk of
such dangerous businesses.
_Bes_.
To take a Prince prisoner in the heart of's own Country in single
combat.
_Mar_.
See how thy blood curdles at this, I think thou couldst be
contented to be beaten i'this passion.
_Bes_.
Shall I tell you truly?
_Mar_.
I.
